This is the coolest retreat. It's hard to imagine all this wildlife and so much land and waterfront, with this kind of ambiance, so close to the big city. It felt more like being in Australia or somewhere very exotic. Having the ability to rent the Lodge as well as the event... Read More venue, proved to be hugely convenient and saved time and money.

This place is amazing! We rented Ranch for the dinner rehearsal and a place for the groom and his buddies to have a place to stay both nights. Peninsula Ranch was more than we expected it to be. The group of young men and women were able to fish, play bean bag toss,... Read More horseshoes, listen to music all while enjoying the deer, zebra and other wildlife. Debi was great from the start.. she help by first taking us on a tour of the place and then helping in other areas... getting dates and times set up, items we would need as well as helping us decorate the night of the rehearsal. Staci the owner was very helpful as well. We also enjoyed getting to know him. Thank you both for helping make an awesome memory for my son's special time in his life. We hope to visit you both again!

We decided on Peninsula Ranch and Lodge for our wedding in October 2017. The long walkway under two archways which takes you right down to the waterfront made a beautiful isle and location for our wedding. After we were married, we moved the reception inside the event center,... Read More it has a rustic feel, lots of lighting, a full kitchen which was exactly what we were looking for. Stacy and Trampas would check in on us periodically and would assist as necessary. We also used the breathtaking lodge for all of our out of town guests to stay in. We even had local folks ask us if it would be ok to check out where we were staying (we stayed in the suite downstairs). Everyone loved what they saw. One morning we woke up to a zebra and a donkey chilling outside our balcony, how cool is that? Needless to say we had a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this location, you will not be disappointed!

This place was amazing and so beautiful. We had our wedding and reception here and it was well worth it. The animals, which included deer, zebra, donkey, bobcat & more were a crowd pleaser for sure.

The Kennemer wedding was absolutely beautiful. It started to rain right before the outside wedding we had planned. We did not know what we were going to do..... start moving the tables where the reception was planned, wait the rain out or..... move it to the chapel. Then the... Read More decision was made and the Peninsula Ranch (PR) crew along with many of our guys started grabbing chairs, drying them off and putting them inside the chapel. The day was not lost. It was a gorgeous wedding in the chapel. The rain could not stop this wonderful day. The bridal group along with a few others stayed in the Lodge. It had a rustic feel with all the comforts of home. And don't forget to take that much needed moment between getting everything done to set outside and breathe in the fresh clean air and adore the beautiful scenery. The reception was catered by PR as well. The food was delicious and the staff was fantastic. I would highly recommend this venue for any occasion you may be planning.

My wedding was in December of 2015. I still think of how kind everyone was, and how accommodating the staff were. My mother-in-law still talks about the Zebra! Thank you Peninsula Ranch for all my memories.

Normally I would not hesitate to apologize for any negative experience from one of our guests, but in this case I have to dispute some of the claims made in the above review. First, we do not, and have never allowed, BYOB. Like every other... Read Less Read More

The ranch has been a part of my life since I was young and I enjoy sharing it with others, especially through the special experience of a wedding. I do my best to make sure that everything goes according to plan, and so far, every one has been a success. It has been a true pleasure to see so many groups through. The positive energy and surrounding nature always make me feel lucky to be where I am.
